Police and fire blotter

Posted: Sunday, April 02, 2000

Juneau police, fire officials, hospital officials and state troopers reported:

Driving while intoxicated:

About 3:15 a.m. Saturday, police arrested Pamela Mueller-Guy, 48, outbound on Glacier Highway for drunken driving and driving with a blood-alcohol level over 0.10 percent. She was lodged at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center. Her vehicle was impounded.

Thefts, lost/found items:

Shortly before midnight Friday, a woman (no age given) reported her red 1990 Jeep Cherokee was missing. Within a matter of seconds, police spotted the vehicle on a road in the Mendenhall Valley and pulled it over. The driver was the woman's 14-year-old son. He was arrested for felony theft, evading an officer and driving without a valid license. He was lodged at the Johnson Youth Center.

The downtown subport warehouse reported about 2:30 p.m. Friday that a portable medical device had been stolen. There were no leads or suspects.

Assault:

Police responded about 3 a.m. Saturday to a fight on South Franklin Street. A woman, 36, placed a woman, 25, under citizen's arrest for assault. The suspect was transported to and lodged at the state prison by police. Alcohol was involved in the incident.

Escape:

Gastineau Manor reported about 11 p.m. Friday that a prisoner had failed to return to the halfway house as scheduled. Police arrested a woman, 25, for escape. She was transported to and lodged at state prison.

Vehicle accidents:

Shortly after 5 a.m. Saturday, police responded to the report of a vehicle in the ditch at 16.5 mile of Glacier Highway. They found a 1995 red BMW in the ditch. No one was at the scene. Police contacted the owner of the vehicle, and found he had not been the driver. The value of the totaled vehicle was put at $25,000. Investigation continues.

Shortly before 5:30 a.m. Saturday, police responded to a report of a turquoise Dodge 4x4 in the ditch on North Douglas Highway. They found the driver, a man, 19, had fallen asleep at the wheel. The vehicle suffered about $5,000 in damage.

Underage drinking:

A woman, 27, reported a fight about 11:30 a.m. Friday on Trout Street. The responding officer found a man, 20, and arrested him for criminal trespass and underage drinking. He was lodged at state prison.

Fires:

At 6:42 a.m. Saturday, firefighters responded to a blaze in the Alaska Travel Adventures warehouse/machine shop on La Perouse Avenue. The blaze was discovered by employees bringing in a vehicle from the ferry. They kept the fire at bay using a garden hose from an adjacent building until firefighters arrived on scene. The fire bit into a wall and traveled up through several attic floor joists. It took about 45 minutes to extinguish hot spots, firefighters said, and it was extinguished before it reached Styrofoam insulation in the attic that would have fueled the flames. Apparently, a mechanic using a welding torch deposited hot slag on the floor, and it smoldered through the night until it burst into flame. Damage to the 2,000-square-foot structure was estimated at $10,000. No one was injured.

Other:

Police conducted a traffic stop about 3:15 a.m. Saturday on a man, 81, who was about to make an illegal turn on Glacier Highway. Police believed his driving was affected by a medical problem. He went to Bartlett Regional Hospital for treatment.

Alcohol-related calls: 3.
